I bought a new Windows Phone 8 and it says that I have to set up an account to download apps since I am 14 years old and I don't have anyone in my family who has a Windows Phone. So what can I do? I really would like some apps on my phone before I try returning it and get a new phone.

I have tried to setup a account myself but it wont let me download game still even if it says my account was created. I would really like to understand why I cant download any games or Facebook. Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?


As @Thomas suggested, your parents need to create a Microsoft Account where they can add you as a child and allow you to download apps.
